Social Care & Housing

Jason O’Brien is the Strategic Director - Social Care and Housing.

The Social Care and Housing Directorate assumes responsibility for all aspects of adults and children’s social care provision, and the strategic and statutory housing functions of the Council, with housing stock having been transferred to Bron Afon Housing Association.

The Directorate’s main aims and objectives are:

  • To ensure that people who live in Torfaen receive a high-quality level of care and support, in line with assessed need, which will be provided equitably and with priority afforded to those with the greatest level of need.
  • To ensure that children and vulnerable adults, living in Torfaen, are safeguarded from harm.
  • To ensure that homelessness is prevented and everyone living in Torfaen has access to a decent home, whether renting or buying.

We will treat everyone with dignity, whilst exploring and increasing choice, protecting people, sharing and managing risks and promoting independence and resilience.

We will continue our transformation of services aimed at safeguarding and improving the quality of life for local people.
